Czech Republic: Audience members attacked after neo-Nazi concert
Police spokesperson Andrea Straková has told the press that eight masked attackers assaulted three men and a woman from Chrudim yesterday evening after a concert by the neo-Nazi band Sons of Bohemia. The assailants fled the scene. Police are investigating the incident.
The four audience members were attacked near the M13 Muzak club in Brno-Králov, allegedly as they were getting into their car. Two of the men suffered light injuries and the woman was in shock, but all made it home without suffering any more serious consequences, Straková said.
Police monitored the neo-Nazi concert from the beginning, but the patrols on the scene were unable to apprehend any of the assailants during the resulting confusion. Detectives say one theory about the attack is that the assailants were neo-Nazi opponents.
Sons of Bohemia were performing in the club on Dobrovského street to launch their new record, "Time for the Solution" ("Čas řešit"). The former lead singer from the Plzeň-based group Ortel, which has frequently been linked to the ultra-right, was supposed to perform solo. They were also supposed to perform a set of Orlík numbers together that were popular during the 1990s among Czech skinheads in particular.
